The Future of PlannerFun.Com

During the month of June, I blogged almost every day with a variety of content. Because of the giveaway, I did receive more comments than previous months and I appreciate those of you who took the time to reach out to me.

The one thing I know for sure is that I can't keep up with a daily blogging schedule.  It's felt a little like pressure to get a blog post out every, and I realize that I am the only one putting on the pressure.  I'm changing things up a little, and I wanted you to know in advance in case you were expecting a post every day from here on out.  <grin>

I love creating inserts and sometimes I will work on something just to see if I can do it.  When that happens, I'll share it with you.  When I create something new, I'll share it with you guys also.  I just don't plan on having a daily schedule anymore.  If several days go by without a post, don't worry!  I will always come back.

Impromptu Blog Vacation

There is so much business going on around here this week that I decided to let the blog slide a bit. I will be back next week, I promise!

Edited to add: LOL! That probably made no sense at all; I just realized that I had pre-scheduled some posts! Here I’ve been sitting all week thinking, “I need to blog!” Anyway, you get what I mean, right?

My Favorite Menu Planner

I have been using this insert for years and it is still my favorite.  I plant groceries for a week at a time, so I feel like I need some room to spread everything out and see it all in one place.

It's a letter-size page, so I don't keep it in my planner. I know I could shrink it down, rotate it and make it a foldable, but that would defeat the purpose I need it for.  Who knows though, I'll probably try it, LOL!  Once upon a time, I thought I would never use a planner smaller than half-size!

The top portion is where you write down your meals, underneath is where you list the ingredients for each meal/recipe.  This helps me not to forget an ingredient.  You can download it here.

From the Archives: Everyday Matters Daily Docket

This one is a bit dated (February 11, 2015), and my style has changed quite a bit, but you never know when someone is going to like something that you think isn't very good, so I'm sharing it! You can download it HERE.

There's a New Planner Group in Town!

I have debated for a couple of weeks now on starting a Facebook group for this blog.  As a matter of fact, I started it and have been slowly working on getting it set up.  I haven't advertised it, so there are not members of yet.

I've named it "Planner Fun Chat" and I'd love to have you join!  We'll chat about the blog, suggestions for new inserts, conversations regarding different planner topics, etc. and even though planners are the main focus, we can share about our lives as well (if you wish).

Follow this link and check it out.  Like I said, it's a new group and you might even be the first member.  Just say "hello" and maybe something about your experiences with planners.

I hope to see you there!!

Friday Felicities for July 3rd, 2020

Welcome to Friday Felicities, a meme created by Nattie - now a resident of heaven. This meme is all about creating a list of things that make you happy. Nattie knew that when you concentrate on your blessings, your sorrows are not as overwhelming. If you would like to participate, please create your own blog post and leave your link in the comments.  I would love to read it!

Things that make me happy:
  • the health benefits from all the water I'm drinking
  • spending time with my sisters (2/3) this week
  • God's provision for my family
  • fresh blueberries (did I already say that?)
  • a plant-based diet
  • regaining my health
  • this crazy cat that is watching over my shoulder
What are the things that make you happy?  Leave your Felicities in the comments OR list them on your blog and put a link in the comments so we can read them too!
